Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone (AMTZ) has become the second Indian company to become a full-time member of the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation (IASP), a leading global network for science parks and areas of innovation.
“AMTZ has become the first scientific park in the state and the second in the country to become a member of IASP which is a unique achievement of its kind,” said Dr Jitendar Sharma, Director and CEO, AMTZ in a statement.
IASP is a membership-based global network for science parks and areas of innovation that coordinates a very active network of professionals that manage areas of innovation and science and technology parks.
With AMTZ becoming a member of IASP, new business opportunities for companies and research organisations located within AMTZ and in Andhra Pradesh will be enhanced. This will also be a boost for development and growth of areas of innovation.
Headquartered at Málaga, Spain, IASP is headed by Josep Miquel Piqué as its President and Luis Sanz as the Director General.
This membership complements the approval of Kalam Institute of Health Technology, which AMTZ received recently.
